    A Republic, Madam, If You Can Keep It...

    Ben Franklin was approached by a grand Philadelphia lady as the Constitutional Convention ended this day in 1787. Have you given us a monarchy or a republic, she asked the oldest of the Founding Fathers. "A republic, Madam, if you can keep it," he said. And we can see a twinkle in his eye. Wise old Ben Franklin knew that republics were not easy to ... (more)

    Guilty As (Sur)charged...

    Today, the Government Accountability Office (GAO), a nonpartisan government agency, released a report confirming what FRC's said repeatedly about ObamaCare: It subsidizes abortion. The exchange plans lack transparency, do not comply with the law on the abortion surcharge, and fund elective abortion with taxpayer funds. The report outlines ... (more)

    Factual Error on Tactical Terror

    It was a familiar September scene for most Americans. Too familiar. Thirteen years ago today, George W. Bush spoke to the nation from the same Oval Office as President Obama did last night, both determined to hunt down the terrorists who threaten our country. While the circumstances surrounding the speeches were different, the enemy is not; Muslim ... (more)

    The Crisis of ISIS

    In 55 days, President Obama isn't up for election -- but his policies certainly are. And while Democrats are sweating bullets, most Americans wish our troops were firing them -- at the madmen of the Islamic State.

    Is the Penn Mightier Than the Sword?

    Penn State may be considered "higher education," but they still have a lot to learn about the First Amendment.

    Congress may have spent a month back home, but Senate leaders obviously didn't learn anything while they were there. With just 10 days left for legislative business, Harry Reid's chamber will have plenty of voters to answer to about why their leaders didn't deal with the crises at hand -- on the border, in the Middle East, and with the economy. ...

    Navy Clears the Decks for Bible Regs

    This summer, the U.S. Navy made plenty of waves with its decision to pull Gideon Bibles from its lodge room drawers. After the public outcry was too much to ignore, branch leaders walked back the decision, choosing to reinstate the books until they could agree on a final policy. Now, over the next couple of weeks, bases like Patuxent River Naval ... (more)
